Heh.  This is not how terminals work.  Forget about terminal emulators
for a momemnt.  Back in the day people used real CRT terminals and
each terminal model understood/spoke its own language.  On the host
side you would use TERM variable to tell your *programs* which
language they need to speak.  If you were using, say, Wyse terminals,
you couldn't magically make them into a vt100 by setting TERM on the
host.  OTOH some (many?) terminals supported several languages and you
could use your terminal's setup menu to tell it to speak DEC VT.

The typescript looks strange.  Are you sure there was not accidental
conversion(s) to/from utf-8 somewhere along the path?
